Are you officially tired of Christmas cookies because I don’t think I am quite there yet. If you are, this Butter Ricotta Cookies Recipe should definitely change your tune. This recipe is seriously sensational too.
I think you all know by now that I’m not into really fussy cookies. I love looking at them but I certainly don’t love making them. That’s probably why you have noticed that the cookies here are Grandbaby Cakes are very similar to the kind your grandmother may have made you. They taste sensational and tickle those memories you just can’t get enough of.
This Butter Ricotta Cookies Recipe certainly fall in that category. I love the taste. The ricotta is such an unexpected flavor. It has just enough of that cheesy tart essence which is so rich when mixed with the butter. The flavors together just sing.
And the texture, oh gosh, the texture is just wow! It is just the right amount of chewy, and each bite melts in your mouth. The hint of vanilla is certainly expected and absolutely delightful. I had one, and then another and then another, and before I knew it, I had tons! They are highly addictive and so good! They are similar in texture to my Tea Cakes recipe.
